    I have known about a dozen people who converted from one religion to another. All of them went with the extreme sect of that religion and became complete dumbarses like Ev here.

    What's religion got to do his inability to see the point?

    MESSAGE TO --EVBLADERUNNER--

    You know that I'm just as against abortion as you are, but try to understand one statement:

    When Laci Peterson was killed, the fetus inside her womb was old enough that under US law an abortion would be considered illegal unless circumstances regarding threats to health changed.

    No, I am not arguing against abortion. In fact, rather opposite. I know(tm) that the abortion of Connor at 9 months would of been considered murder; I was talking about the Lacy-Connor law, not this specific case. According to the Lacy-Connor law, a woman can be 3 weeks along in her pregnancy and if I beat her up and she miscarries, I can be charged with 1st degree murder. This also opens up the possibility of a woman who regrets an abortion suing the doctor that performed the procedure by saying that she changed her mind and they went through with it anyway. That is just not fair at all and blatantly disregards Roe v. Wade. The reason I mention it in regards to this case is that even though abortion would of been considered murder then, this sets up legal presidence that it is ok to charge a guy for murdering a fetus.

    I seriously doubt extreme sects of Islam are afraid of abortion being banned.

    Oh now I see what you're trying to say. So I guess this derives from your belief that domestic violence is okay?

    no, it was just an example; I disagree with domestic violence.

    So what exactly is it that you find morally reprehensible about a man who beats a pregnant woman to the point of miscarriage being charged with murder?

    The fact that the "bundle of cells" inside of her has rights in that case, but has no rights if they died under circumstances the woman supported and chose to happen. I think that the man should be charged with assault, and maybe be involved in a civil suit.

    I agree with the law.

    Abortion by choice = OK.

    Abortion by unwillfull force = not ok.

    So i agree with the law, they arent saying abortion is murder all the time, only when forced. Matter of fact, i say once your diagnosed pregnant that should be the case, not three weeks.

    read the legal definition of murder, it applies to a human being, not a "sack of cells"/zygote/fetus. Allowing a fetus to be considered a person or human being for any case opens the door for Roe v. Wade to be overturned. Relativism should not be allowed at all regarding something that is a constitutional right.

    I would most certainly hope so!

    Wait, whoa, apply the brake force Luke, I'm confused...I must've missed something here. How does that open the door for the Roe V. Wade case to be overturned? They ruled in favor of her that she should be allowed to have the choice to abort the baby (although by the time the case was settled, she had the baby and gave it up or adoption). That's just a case of Abortion by choice. I agree with what RoD said.

    edit:
    Besides, in the ironic side of things the death of the baby is a moot point as far as I'm concerned, because if I had my way I'd just have him executed for the brutal murder of Laci.

    Yes but I always have felt that double standards are bad for all those on the bad side of it *thinks back to segregation and the years before women/black's admission into the franchise*

    EDIT: just realized that if I really felt that way, I would have to :

    1) give up my religion; as according to it: one group goes to heaven , the rest go to hell.

    2) think that rape is ok(another case of "choice" on the woman's part)
    .
    .
    .
    the list goes on.

    Double standard?

    A pregnant lady was brutally murdered, hacked into pieces, and dumped into a river...what the hell are you talking about?

    I think I will just have to leave from the point that everyone here is taking the far-right opinion that there were two individuals murdered that day, while I believe only one was.
